    • Redacted and Privilege documents are commonly excluded from Native productions. Since the document has been redacted or is privileged, you should not include the raw native file, which would be unredacted. You may include these natives if you are sending a set of unredacted and privileged files to the client or co-counsel for their review.

      NOTE: Files that exist in multiple categories such as Excluded and Privilege or Excluded and Redacted will use the setting in the Redacted/Privilege section to ensure important/privilege data isn’t accidentally included in a production.

    • Remaining files indicate all the items that were left unaddressed.
